BROKE IT GENTLY.
He Didn't Know Exactly What to Do,
So They Came to His Rescue.
A young author and critic, who has
come to be an authority upon a certain
modern phase of educalon, went a few
days ago to deliver his first lecture at
a girls' school. He had lectured before,
but never at a young ladies' semi
nary, and as two white frocked. curly
haired ushers led tiini out to the plat
form and he sat down beside the tun

AN INSOLENT WRITER.
He Found Ha Couldn't Dictate to a
Typical John Bull.
That sprouting Scotch peer, the Earl
of Leron, who rebuked a ship news re
porter who approached him by declar
ing that "no gentleman ever speaks to
another without an introduction; it
simply isn't done." is an old friend of
James Francis Dwyer. the Australian
novelist that is, Dwyer doesn't actu
ally know the Earl of Levon, but he
knows his sweetly' British sort.
"I ought to," said Dwyer. "I was
broke in London and I learned to
know the true Briton. Once I an
swered an advertisement for a literary
secretary. To make certain that my
letter would be read I wired the ad
vertiser as lollows:
" 'Do not engage a literfcry secretary
until you have read my letter of ap
plication.' "That letter was a gem. I thought I
would land the place with It sure. I
was certain of It when a large, square
letter directed me to appear at a nam-:
ed address at a given boar. It was a
four penny bus ride-, but I didn't care.
My fortune was opening out before dm.
I squandered the fourpence without a
miserly thought. A pompous butler
ushered me into a black oak library,
where the original stuffed model of
John Bull sat at a table. I sat down
meekly and waited to 'be spoken to.

That Is What Opium Smokers Call
"Hitting the Pipe."
The opium smoker In the act of
smoking is said to be "cooking a pill.'
Smokers of tobacco In seeing opium
pipes have been misled Into the belief
that the large bowl of the pipe Is filled
with opium when really the "pill" la
simply pasted over a tiny opening in
the cover of the bowl. Heating of the
bowl produces dense fumes, which are
drawn through the bowl and the stem'
of the pipe into the smoker's mouth.
Neither does one pipe of opium pro
duce stupor. A "pill" dazes only even
an Inexperienced smoker as a large
drink would effect a person unused to
alcohol. The opium users who have
been pictured stretched on bnnks of
opium dens in utter stupor have been
saturated with the drug.
Reclining on a bed, the smoker places
the layout within easy reach and lights
the lamp. Peanut oil, burning slowly
and without evil odors or fumes, Ls used
exclusively. The smoker Is then ready
to prepare his "pill."
The yen-h'ik, or dipper, a long, nee
dle shaped instrument, ls put Into the
opium receptacle and turned slowly In
the black and sticky substance until a
small quantity of opium adheres to the
point. It is then placed over the flame
of the lamp, and. turning the dipper,
the smoker rolls and cook the "pill"
until It is ready for the pipe-
The tiny speck ls then thrust Into the
opening of the bowl, which, held above
the lamp, slowly begins to produce
opium futies, which are drawn in by
the snnker through the s'em of hLs
pipe. The "pill" lusts only from thirty
to forty set-ends, nnd to enjoy another
smoke the minie preijrati'ms have to
be repeated. New York Tribune.
